In the offseason, Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge often spends his Friday and Saturday nights at Yost Ice Arena watching Michigan hockey games. He lives in Saline and is a season-ticket holder for Michigan hockey, so it's no surprise he will be spending this upcoming Saturday at Michigan Stadium to watch The Big Chill at the Big House.
Inge got a chance to get a look at the ice on Thursday with his kids and he will be one of the 110,000-plus fans in attendance on Saturday.
“I appreciate all the work that went into this,” Inge said. “It’s going to be the biggest spectator hockey event ever to happen.
“I’m a huge hockey fan. I love all aspects of the game. How hard it is, to be honest with you. I’ve become a Michigan fan. This is my team to follow.”
From one Michigan fan who will be at The Big Chill to another, Go Blue, Mr. Inge.
